We’ve got our fingers crossed that Sarah Palin shows up at her local golf course this weekend. The former Alaska governor lives in Wasilla, the very same town which will be home to this year’s Cannabis Cup Alaska, held at the Settlers Bay Golf Course.

If she does stop by, she will meet a whole host of 420-friendly sights and sounds. The event’s organizers are being a little cheeky about whether or not attendees can technically legally imbibe the wacky tobaccy while on the back nine, but one thing is certain: there’s going to be some music.

High Times has announced the full lineup, which has a little something for almost anybody who likes weed. The headliners include hip-hop greats Method Man, Redman, and Arrested Development, as well as the soothing sounds of the electronic act Thievery Corporation and the reggae Cannabis Cup regulars Iration.

If she does swing by, Palin could find out she has a lot in common with Method Man. They’re both rich, for one, and they’ve both been on TV with bad hair and guns (exhibit A, exhibit B, exhibit C).

Palin herself is not nearly as hard-edged against cannabis as some other prominent conservatives. She said in 2010 that she felt cops probably had bigger fish fry than weed. “If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems that we have in society,” she said, which is very Alaskan of her.

The one-time vice presidential nominee also admitted to smoking weed, but said she didn’t support legalization. “I’m not for the legalization of pot,” she said, “I think that would just encourage especially our young people to think that it was OK to just go ahead and use it.”
